Which gamer most effected the way you play? I can’t really say one player has effected the way I play more than others, as my experience as a role-player only grows with each different person I play with. Was is Dennis D., the first person to introduce me to RPGs back when I was 8-years-old? Was it Scott, who first …

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

I first heard about Emergents: Genesis back in November of 2015 and was instantly interested in the game. Then, at PAX East this year, I finally had a chance to sit down and play the game. I also left with a copy to give it a proper review. Emergents is a comic book themed deck builder where 2-4 players get …

Largest in-game surprise you have experienced? Surprises are always fun, even when they’re not. They a bit of excitement and can dramatically change the tone of a game session. One of the largest, and well pulled off, surprises I’ve experienced in a game was during an set of extended Planescape sessions. The session in question was played over the course …

Review – Mega Man: The Board Game

Rob Kalajian review 2 Comments

Do you prefer hardcover, softcover, or electronic books? What are the benefits of your preference? Why not both (or all 3?) I really love the feel of a sturdy, hardcover RPG. It’s a wonderful, tactile experience from when the book is brand new all the way until it’s been worn down and time and play. I still have my original …

What aspect of RPGs has had the most effect on you? The best thing about RPGs is the social aspect. People coming together to tell a story together and have a great time. RPGs have always filled a social need in my life. Playing at a friend’s house. Playing at camp since I wasn’t much into sports. Telling stories with …

Most amazing thing a game group did for their community? This is going to be a short one today, mostly because none of any game group I’ve been part of has done anything for the community as a group. We’ve all done our own things, whether it be donating time, money, or items in need, but never anything as a …
